Good morning, Tar Heels! Here’s your daily update on the midterm elections, summer romance in Chapel Hill and indie rock bands.
- On Tuesday, a year and a half after the DTH sued UNC to disclose the names of affiliated students or faculty who committed sexual misconduct, the North Carolina Court of Appeals released a ruling in favor of the DTH.
- “They will see what this is going to do. It’s going to be an explosion.” As Enviva, a wood pellet manufacturer, prepares for construction in Dobbin Heights, residents feel neglected and mistreated by manufacturers once again.
- No. 15 UNC baseball (24-13, 12-6 ACC) began its toughest stretch of the season with a 8-3 loss to No. 4 N.C. State on Tuesday night at the neutral confines of Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
GRADUATES AND UNDERGRADUATES
- "I’m kind of the fixer at SNL, but I deal with Kanye West." 20 years ago, Lindsay Shookus lived in Ehaus, was the president of a sorority and studied journalism at UNC. Now, she’s a two-time Emmy winning producer of SNL and 30 Rock.
- In total, 112 UNC players have been drafted in the NBA, including an NCAA-best 49 in the first round — and this year, seven former Tar Heels will appear in the NBA Playoffs.
- “Protests and things do create change, but voting is the number one way.” Only 19.9 percent of citizens aged 18-29 voted in the 2014 midterm election, compared to 47.9 of those aged 30 and older — but that might change after the 2016 election.
